Gluten-free Sugar Cookies

Even though I advocate finding joy in foods that are naturally gluten-free, it is the holidays. And I still like some traditions. No matter what, I still like roll-out sugar cookies, thick and threaded through with vanilla, cut into Christmas-tree shapes and frosted with buttercream frosting.

This is a recipe I adapted from Sonya Joseph's gluten-free cooking class I took at the beginning of the month. They work. They'll fill that need.

2 1/2 cups of your favorite gluten-free flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

2 1/2 teaspoons of xanthan gum (omit if your gluten-free flour mix already contains this)

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup margarine

1/2 cup butter

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla (make sure it's gluten-free. Use only pure vanilla, please.)

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

After you have preheated the oven to 350

Great recipe! I used all butter as that is what I had in the house. They rolled our beautifully into many shapes. Slightly underbaking them produces a soft in the middle cookie. I'm going to make some into Milano type cookies when they cool down. I shaped some into pretzel shapes and sprinkled with coarse sugar. They look like the ones in the blue tins everyone has at Christmas---but they taste way better!

Yeah Patti!

Soft Gluten Free Sugar Cookies

INGREDIENTS

4 cups gluten free flour (I use this mix: 1 cup cornstarch, 1 cup tapioca flour, 1 cup rice flour, 1 TBSP potato flour)

3 teaspoons guar/xanthan gum

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 cup butter, softened

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 cup sour cream

DIRECTIONS

Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg, vanilla and sour cream until well blended. Stir in the sifted ingredients. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch in thickness. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I got this recipe from allrecipes.com years ago, and it became "my" sugar cookie recipe. I modified it to take it gluten free. The cookies are incredibly soft, so much so that they even take a little longer to dry out than most gluten free cookies. ;) I hope it works well for you.

I made these cookies this morning, while the taste was wonderful, I had a lot of trouble with the cookies crumbling. I used Tom Sawyer's flour blend and omitted the xanthan gum since the flour mix already has it in. By the last cookie sheet I figured out these things: Roll out the dough to at least 1/2" thick or more and don't leave the cookies rest 5 min. on the pan, remove them promply. When I followed the directions exactly, The cookies stuck to the cookie sheet leaving half the cookie behind and they would just crumble. I have had a similar experience with chocolate chip cookies. Anyone know how to remedy the "crumbling" cookie?

I would suggest using parchment paper, then let the cookies cool on it while loading up cookies on more paper. Or spray the pan?? More xanthan gum??

I made the egg free version (applesauce as a sub). The first batch tried to crumble so I let them cool a bit before removing them. They were fragile but hardened after cooling. They were so yummy there wasn't any leftover :)

The second batch, I baked them too long and they were hard. Mine never stuck to the cookie sheet and I never used parchment. I think some frosting should soften them.

I want to try making them again.

Just a follow up. I made a batch of these this morning and I tried out a couple of different things and they turned out great. No more crumbling cookies! I used two eggs instead of one, rolled them out double the thickness recommended, and baked them for 10 min. on parchment paper lined cookie sheets. After taking them out of the oven I just slid the cookies on the parchment paper off onto a cooling rack to completly cool. They came off without a problem and did not crumble. They were great!! Santa is going to have some awesome cookies this year!! Happy baking everyone!

I made these in my avitar. The dough ends up very elastic-not super sticky, but I rolled it out between 2 pieces of plastic wrap, cut the shapes out, pulled the excess off around the shapes and inverted the plastic wrap onto parchment paper. Sounds harder than it was, but overall, no major problems. They taste really good, very buttery!

2 sticks of softened butter

1 c sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

3c gluten-free flour

3 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar till fluffy, add eggs and vanilla

Combine dry ingredients together, add slowly to the butter mixture

Divide into 3 balls, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate or freeze for 30-60 minutes

Roll out (like mentioned above). Bake 375 for about 7-10 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool completely before frosting.

Your wish is my command :D

These are really good--I think they taste like "regular" sugar cookies, and the prep is the same....

Thanks a million jerseyangel (Patti) - this recipe is now my Sugar Cookie recipe - I don't have to look any further. Even my fussy husband thought they were good. Now all I have to do is decorate them to take to surprise my celiac son on Boxing Day. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! :D

    • Hi Lisa, I completely understand why you didn't do a biopsy on your daughter.  I went through the appendix thing myself...not fun!  I was diagnosed with just bloodwork and no biopsy, but did have the full panel.  I would go back to your PCP and ask for a full panel to include TTG, EMA and DGP tests.  Since she was already willing to test you, I'm sure she would be willing to order these.  Good luck!
    • What a gross title–it bothers me and I wrote it! It wasn't my idea originally. The research paper the data came from was entitled, "Experimental hookworm infection and gluten microchallenge promote tolerance in celiac disease" published recently in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.

    • katesyl.........this is an older topic so the OP most likely won't answer.  I can, however, offer a piece of advice for you. Just going gluten free will probably not drive your inflammation markers down into normal.  It does depend on how high they were to begin with but with all autoimmune diseases, there will be inflammation going on forever.  Get used to wonky blood work because most of us will have that issue. I have 4 autoimmune diseases in total and, although I have driven certain inflammatory markers way down, my recent sed rate number was elevated.  The normal is supposed to be 30 and under in a woman my age but mine is 50.  With 4 AI diseases, I doubt it will ever be normal and I don't let it bother me. I am not willing to take major meds at all and use more natural anti-inflammatory supplements.  You can do whatever you feel comfortable with in regards to treatment but don't expect normal numbers with Celiac Disease. Inflammation will improve but normal?  Most people never get there completely.
    • My daughter's PCP did not go against anything, she offered to do the biopsy - I was the one opposed to it. My DD, who was 10 at the time had just spent 3 weeks in the hospital, very sick with a ruptured appendix, then had 2 surgeries a few months after. I didn't see the need to put her through anything else with her numbers so high and all the classic symptoms. Apparently, in some other countries, if your numbers are all high, they forego biopsy. Anyway, I was really asking about myself and whether I should push for add'l testing. I am still new this this and trying to get up-to-date and wasn't sure if my PCP should conduct other blood tests before I go completely gluten-free. I have been somewhat gluten-free, but not entirely. I have no problem going gluten-free, but want to make sure that I am doing it for the right reasons. I wasn't sure if the Gliadin Abs IgA was sufficient to point to Celiac and possibly doing a biopsy for me. Or if additional blood test would make more sense.   Thanks!!
    • I would like to know if you have found out the source of your inflammation yet. I'm gluten free three years but my inflammation test was high.
